Finding appropriate formal wear can sometimes be challenging for hijabis, especially when living in the West. On top of that, there is a huge range of formal wear, which can make it a little overwhelming for some people.
We find that the best way to choose an outfit for an upcoming event is to think about how you want to feel on that day. This will help you get started with choosing the right type of outfit. Depending on how you want to feel, you can decide on whether a dress, pants, or a skirt is the way to go!
We've compiled three outfit ideas suitable for various events to inspire and help you find your perfect outfit for your next formal event.
This outfit says sophisticated and professional. It features a long straight cut blazer, paired with a simple black top and black frayed skinny jeans. Its a great choice for those looking for an alternative to wearing a dress at a formal event, or those who simply work in a professional setting.

If your looking for an elegant outfit, this one is for you. It features a beautiful long embellished gown in a light grey colour, paired with the ever so famous dusty rose chiffon hijab.
Details about the gown: This gown features long sleeves that are sheer, so a thin cotton long sleeve top in the same colour as the dress was worn underneath. The dress also comes very long, so it was tailored to feature a normal length at the front and a train from the back.
Hijab: Dusty Rose Chiffon Hijab
This look is far more simple than the others, making it suitable for those who want to look elegant but not overdone. It features a long dusty rose coloured gown paired with the earth grey chiffon hijab.
Dress details: This dress was ordered in a very long size so that it can be tailored to feature a train in the back.
